### What is a Centimeter?

A **Centimeter** (abbreviation, cm) is a unit for measuring length in the metric system of measurement. A Centimeter is equal to one hundredth of a metre (1/100).

The centimetre remains a practical unit of length for many everyday measurements of the length of objects and small distances.

A meter consists of 100 centimeters, a square meter consists of 10,000 square centimeters, and a cubic meter consists of 1,000,000 cubic centimeters.

### What is a Micrometer?

The **Micrometre** (SI symbol: μm) or micrometer (American spelling), also commonly known as a micron, is a unit of length equalling 1×10−6 meter (SI standard prefix "micro-" = 10−6); that is, one-millionth of a meter (or one-thousandth of a millimeter, 0.001 mm, or about 0.00004 inches).

A micrometer is a standard unit of measurement used to measure wavelengths of infrared radiations, sizes of biological cells and bacteria, and for grading wool by the diameter of the fibers.

The width of a single human hair ranges from approximately 20 to 200 μm. The longest human chromosome, chromosome 1, is approximately 10 μm in length.

### How to Convert Centimeter to Micrometers?

To convert Centimeter to Micrometers, simply multiply the Centimeter value by 10000.

The formula used to calculate Centimeter to Micrometers -

**d**_{(cm)} = **d**_{(μm)} * 10000

The distance *d* in Micrometers (μm) is equal to the distance *d* in Centimeters (cm) multiplied by 10000.

### How many Micrometers in a Centimeter

In simple terms, 1 cm is equal to 10000 μm.

The formula used is 1*10000 = 10000(μm)

### How many Centimeters in a Micrometer

1 Micrometer is equal to 0.0001 Centimeters. So we can also say that there are 0.0001 Centimeters in a Micrometer.
